This Rarities Series Tele is a Real Beauty
The Fender Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster is September’s entry in their Rarities Series, and it’s a real beauty. Its chambered alder body gets the party started with an über-resonant blend of brightness and warmth, but that’s just the beginning. You also get an eye-catching flame maple top, which enhances the guitar’s tone with added bite and sustain. Plug into your favorite amp and you’re in for a treat — its hot vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup serves up overwound Tele twang with serious punch, while its Shawbucker 1T neck pickup is on fire with gritty, aggressive humbucker tone. A Modern Deep C-shaped maple neck and 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard ensure impressive comfort and playability. A striking gloss polyurethane finish and 3-saddle, vintage-style bridge round out the Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster’s exciting features.
Top-shelf woods offer premium tone and looks
The Fender Rarities Series Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster is built from premium woods. Its chambered alder body is roasted, then topped with eye-popping flame maple, yielding a balanced blend of resonance, brightness, and warmth. Its maple neck and fingerboard, besides offering exquisite playability, add extra bite and sustain to this guitar’s beautiful tonal cocktail. The Flame Maple Top Chambered Tele’s gloss polyurethane finish adds a dazzling shine to its visually stunning finish.
Flexible pickup combination yields a multitude of punchy tones
One thing that'll be clear from the first time you plug in is that this Rarity Series guitar packs more punch than a standard Tele. That's because the Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster comes loaded with a potent set of pickups. In the bridge, you’ll find a hot, vintage-style single-coil pickup for an overwound Tele twang that’s sure to push your amp into overdrive. In the neck, you’ll find a Shawbucker 1T that delivers vintage-inspired humbucker tones with a touch more punch than its vintage brethren. And the onboard treble bleed circuit ensures that your tone stays clear and present when lowering the guitar's volume.
